Book Lust: Three day Quote Challenge

When the days are dreary, dreadful and deprived.

When the nights are lonely, lackadaisical and lethargic.

Behold the silver lining, the book on the nightstand.

It’s the elixir, take it into your hand.


 

Books are like parents. It doesn’t matter how much you ignore them, they are there for you when you most need them.


 

Thanks a lot Roo for nominating me for the Three Day Quote Challenge. You have always been wonderfully kind to me and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you.

For those of you who haven’t read her blog, please do so. She has her way with words I have found very fulfilling to read.

For the quotes challenge I have taken the liberty of bending the rules a bit. And I have tried writing my own quotes.

This is about book lust. One that drove me to the streets early in the morning to visit the Delhi Book Fair 2016. The stalls of Penguin, Oxford Press, Hachette, among others made me feel like Alice in Wonderland. Though I was a bit dejected because there was no separate section for ‘Humor’ in such distinguished places also.

Who would take care of India’s humor? It is true that India is witnessing the rise of various wordsmiths from among its common populace. But who would take the vacant spot left behind by greats like Khushwant Singh? Don’t we owe it to our nation and the world to repay the mirth and laughter provided so generously to us by P.G. Wodehouse and Jerome K. Jerome? Although it is not yet over for the world, as there were a few shelves devoted to  P.G. Wodehouse at Penguin.  🙂

I would like to nominate the following amazing people for the challenge:

  1. Jishnu
  2. Robert
  3. Visakha

Let’s see what they bring to the table.

Cheers!

  1. Oh wow! Those quotes are amazing! 🙂
    I think you just might become famous! 😉
    But yaar, I never got your ping back! I just made my way over to see what you have been upto and saw my name here. Did you not ping back to a post? Either that or I have been acting drunk! Really sorry about the delayed response though!
    I already posted my first day quote for the same challenge today. So I’ll just club your nomination with the rest if you don’t mind! 🙂

    1. Hey thanks a lot Visakha. 🙂
      No I don’t think you’ve been acting drunk. I’ve been acting dumb 😀
      I thought if I insert hyperlink of your about page, a ping back would be created automatically. 😀
      Now I realise why all the people I nominated for the awards didn’t post.
      I’ll have to make some amends.
      Same way I don’t know how to display multiple award images in a single image widget like a slideshow. Putting separate image widgets would appear clumsy. Any help?

      1. Okay.. So, you can use a Gallery Widget. Once you add images to the widget, you can decide how you want the images to be displayed – slideshow, tiles or circles; without having separate image widgets! Let me know if you need any help! 🙂
